5:31 am
vehicle pulling that wreckage into likely a hangar here at the airport so the investigation can continue. we are waiting for more information on if that was a fire and how it started at about 3:00 or 3:30 this morning. of course, asiana flight 214 crash-landed at if on saturday morning. two people died, more than 180 others were injured. the 777 jet has been on the runway ever since as investigators have been collecting physical evidence. now, two of our congressional delegates visited the crash site yesterday praising the ntsb and first responders who helped save lives. >> the carnage that exists at the fuselage is horrific. we are grateful that so many lives were saved and our first responders were there to make sure that they got out when they did. >> it was emotional. but what is impressive to me is that as emotional as it was to
5:32 am
us to just arrive and seeing it carrying our hearts all week and seeing it in the news was that these people here on the ground, the chairman, the mayor and others, they had to deal with it minute by minute, our first responders. so they have to be unemotional about a very emotional thing. >> reporter: so the plan was for the ntsb to cut up and store the remainder of the plane's fuselage in a secure location here in the bay area. and then the feds were going to save some of the pieces to be taken to washington, d.c. for further analysis. but we don't know what might have changed about that plan or what might have been sped up because of what appears to be a fire at the wreckage this morning. live near sfo, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> thank you. the ntsb investigation is expected to take several months to complete. the ntsb has talked a lot about throttles, air speed and altitude. kpix 5's allen martin shows a new perspective on the crash
5:33 am
and a better idea of what should have happened during the landing. reporter: this animation shows how flight 214 came into sfo. the second blue image is how it should have approached the runway. and about 9 seconds before impact a pilot makes the first comment about speed. you can see how much higher 214 should be. just after that, the plane's tail starts to drop. the first call to aboard the -- to abort the landing is too late. the rear landing gear slams into the rock wall at the end of the runway then the tail of the plane. >> one thing to note about that animation, the blue plane is meant to show the proper flight path but to make the comparison it had to be slowed down well beyond the proper speed 214 should have been going. three crash victims are still in critical condition this morning at san francisco general hospital. a spokesman says one of them is a juvenile and at stanford hospital two patients are in serious and good conditions. california pacific medical center has three patients in good condition. and saint mary's and st. francis each has a patient in stable condition. stay right here with kpix 5 for the latest updates on the crash- landing.

5:35 am
daughter. still no one has come forward and said they saw the 21-month- old being taken from her dad's suv. meanwhile, time is ticking. fbi and police are working around the clock to find her. yesterday investigators combed through the waterfront area. it was a search on the water in the sky and on the ground. >> that's an area where the father and the child used to frequent. so we want to make sure that we're very thorough and we search that area. not only for witnesses or any evidence that may lead us in a direction during this investigation. >> reporter: webb says his daughter was taken from his parked suv as he ran into a corner store to grab an energy drink. he told police she was taken by a stranger. police say they are still looking for a suspect. witnesses say they saw a black or hispanic woman with long black hair walking away with a girl who look like daphne. now, as far as the search here on the waterfront, yesterday's search turned up unsuccessful
5:36 am
and that robot came up with nothing. so investigators still have their work cut out for them. reporting live in oakland, cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> as far as we know webb is still not considered a suspect. still no one came forward placing the girl with her dad. deliberations could begin as soon as this afternoon in the second degree murder trial of george zimmerman. we have a live look inside the courtroom right now out in florida. prosecutors finished their closing arguments yesterday claiming zimmerman trayvon martin after profiling the teen as a criminal. the defense is expected to close right now this morning. the jury will be able to consider a lesser charge of manslaughter. >> they have to prove ill will, malice, hatred along that line to get to that level. so the manslaughter is a killing without justification. >> zimmerman has admitted to shooting martin last year but says it was self-defense after martin sucker punched him and slammed his head into the
